From a paper by Nathaniel A. White II, DVM, MS, Diplomate ACVS, Virginia Tech; a few
"Colic is one of the most difficult diseases to study due to the large number of
diseases which create signs of colic."
"A recent study in Texas found an increased risk of colic associated
with weather changes as recalled by owners of horses with colic."
"In a study in Virginia, seven cases of colic occurred during a
snowstorm over a three-day period. This was unusual as there were
only 104 cases of colic in the horses being studied for a full year."
"Most likely the focal increase in colic episodes was not directly
related to the weather, but rather due to management changes caused
by the weather."
